  • How about a GX1 sized camera with a better lens and an APS sized sensor. An LX100 on steroids but with Canon's friendly OS and a big fat EVF. That WOULD interest me.
  • Thanks, Mark. I was happy to have one sit still for me for long enough to get some shots with the Raynox. Never managed that before. :) I worked out why there is no EXIF data - I uploaded a ...
  • Replied in Norman
    It seems a lot of us like our animals and insects :) This is Norman; he fell out of the curtains by the front door today and so needed relocating to somewhere safe before the cats and dogs found ...
  • I'm an ordinary person with a s120. It takes pictures of tiny fast moving objects just fine for me. You should be able to get better pictures with the G9X than these with the bigger sensor, even ...
  • Ha! Thanks Andy, that's very great of you to say that. I take a lot of spider shots here - our garden is crawling with insects and they make great subjects if you're into the 'macro world'. If I ...
  • I found this lady crawling over my shoe at lunch on Sunday. Happily for her I like spiders so I found her somewhere a little safer to hang out till she pops!  It's a wolf spider, Trochosa species. ...
  • A quick look on Google tells me the five-spotted hawkmoth, Manduca quinquemaculata, i s to blame for them critturs. So the answer is 'No'. :) Your challenge this year will be to photograph one of those
  • Just processed a couple of photos from yesterday. Nothing special, just like the colours and the crop. Not good to crop, I know...... sigh
  • Okay -  found your exact species, it's the white-lined sphinx moth, Hyles lineata lineata. Different from the one I suggested above, but very close cousins. More info here: ...
  • Mark, I believe your moth is possibly a Striped Hawk Moth Hyles, Lineata livornica, which is typically a southern European or African species. You may have recorded a migrant or a similar species ...
  • Getting things in flight is one of my pet subjects, Mark. You've had a right result there, like it very much.
  • Like this one a lot for the sense of scale - impressive!
  • Thanks for the kind words!  Happened to be in the right place at the right time, with a camera in the car for a change, normally never works out for me that way...sigh Colour version is fine too, ...
  • Hello folks. I'm relatively new here, but hope you won't be too harsh with my offering. It's a photo taken this week down in the reclaimed marshland here on the west coast of France, just south of ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Spring Salvation
    The marshland of the coastland Charente Maritime is a wonderful subject in moving light
    Placed 35th in the challenge. The marshland of the coastland Charente Maritime is a wonderful subject in moving light
  • Replied in trips to -
    A year's travelling, to: Kimberley coast and interior (Aus) Patagonia The Białowieża Forest The Tepui of south America The Solomon Islands I'd take my family and some other people along who would ...
  • and I'm also looking for cameras that preview the effect of ISO. On the two Canons I have, adjusting any of the three shooting parameters in Manual will change exposure instantly. Sometimes, I need ...
  • Thank you, Justin. I missed your previous answer, too. Sorry if you had to repeat yourself. I think between you and Pan X I have the answer I was looking for. The info on Panasonics is saddening - ...
  • It seems as though there is some confusion over what I have asked about, and I apologise for that, but Pan X seems to have summed it up nicely with his WYSIWYG comment, whereby I'm after a camera ...
  • Yes - that's correct. I'd be amazed of Canon were the only company to do so though. Surely someone else has the same mode? Perhaps what I want to discuss is not called Live Exposure Preview, then?
